There will unlikely be a new Assassin’s Creed title released in 2011, Ubisoft Montreal‘s Jean-Francois Boivin explained recently. With Assassin’s Creed II last November and Asasssin’s Creed: Brotherhood this November, Boivin explains that the series is in dire need of a “breather”.
“Honestly, I think for the benefit of everybody – and business can come back and override everything I say because at the end of the day it’s about selling games – I believe that this license needs a breather. You can’t plough a field every year,” Boivin told Eurogamer.
“Once every three years – or once every something – you have to let it breathe. You have to let the minerals back in. I think it’s the same thing with any license, really.”
So that’s no Assassin’s Creed for 2011?
“I don’t think there’s going to be an Assassin’s Creed in 2011. I think we’re going to let it breathe a bit and really focus on bringing something new and exciting for the next time around. This [Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood] is the end of Ezio’s story. This is it.”
Guess that means the next game is Assassin’s Creed III, then?
